Light sweetness throughout. Slight saltiness present closer to the end of the sip. For some reason, drinking this tea makes me think of pudding (butterscotch or chocolate). The flavour blooms into a more solid caramel taste nearing the end of the sip. This tea sometimes feels thin in the middle, which may be due to the saltiness. I am able to detect the black tea to a slight degree in this blend. There is a definite saltiness in the lingering aftertaste. I feel that I may be a bit sensitive to having actual salt in my tea. I was very glad to try something so different from my usual choices.
